Tips to Make Your Message Personal

You don’t need to write a unique message for every recipient—but you can still make it personal! To add a more heartfelt touch, start with a general message then finish up with a line tailored to your recipient.

Here are some topic ideas to mention in your Christmas or holiday card:

  • Combine messages, mix and match the pieces you like best, or swap out “happy holidays” for “Merry Christmas” where you need it
  • Congratulate your recipient on recent life events such as a marriage, new family member, or job change
  • Make future plans to meet up or invite the recipient to visit
  • Mention a favorite memory from the year or past holidays
  • Thank the recipient for a gift that they sent
